Akshayakalpa Organic Introduces Dairy Farming Model

Akshayakalpa Organic, a certified organic dairy company and producer of the popular organic milk, today established a stronger footprint in Tamil Nadu with the inauguration of its Model Organic Dairy Farm in Pooriyambakkam village in Changalpattu District, located 90 KMS south of Chennai.  

Named Akshayakalpa Velan Kudil or ‘farmer’s home’, the new model farm is a replica of its highly successful mother farm in Tiptur in Karnataka. Akshayakalpa works with more than 850 farmers Karnataka and with 300 farmers in Tamil Nadu, Chengalpattu District. 

The new farm was inaugurated by Oliver Ballhatchet, British Deputy High Commissioner to Tamil Nadu and Puducherry, as the UK’s development finance institution British International Investment (BII) is a major investor in Akshayakalpa Organic.

BII joined Akshayakalpa Organic in September 2022, as a key investor along with Rainmatter Foundation, and existing investor Venture Dairy to help fulfill its promise to promote, support, and grow sustainable and regenerative farming while providing access to premium organic milk to its consumers.

In its Series B funding round, Akshayakalpa raised $15 million from BII and other investors and has been able to further bring alive its vision to transform livelihood-based agriculture into wealth-creation opportunities for small and marginal farmers and make farming an aspirational vocation for future generations, according to a communication from the company.
